Website accessibility

The Lennart Meri Conference website is developed according to WCAG 2.0 AA accessibility standards. It has been developed to be as perceivable, operable, understandable and robust as possible.

The website fully supports zooming in and out, keyboard only navigation as well as using a screen reader. More help on these methods is provided below.

Colours used in the design of the website are representative of those of the conference’s visual identity, but have been used in a way to help users to clearly see the text and other content on the website. The colour combinations in use are with defined contrast ratios.


To zoom on the Lennart Meri Conference website, we recommend using the browser built-in zoom feature.

Browsers allow zooming in and out by pressing the Ctrl (Cmd) and +/ – keys. Alternatively, the user can hold down the Ctrl (Cmd) key and scroll up/down with the mouse.

Browsers also have plug-ins that extend the default zooming capabilities further. You can look into Zoom Page for Firefox, AutoZoom for Chrome. Other alternatives are also available for more uncommon browsers.

Keyboard only navigation

Reading a website

To scroll the viewport down, up, left, or right, use the respective arrow keys.

When tabbing through a page (see below), the viewport is scrolled automatically to the currently focused element, so using the arrow keys often is not necessary.

Interacting with a website

To interact with an element, keyboard users need to move the so called “focus” sequentially through all interactive elements on a page until they reach the desired element. The currently focused element is highlighted visually.


Use Tab to move from one focusable item to the next focusable item.

Focusable items typically are links, buttons, form controls, and all sorts of other interactive elements such as custom widgets.

Use Tab+Shift to reverse the direction.

Use Enter to:

Activate a link or button.

Send a form (when a form item has focus).

Use Space to:

Toggle an element’s state (for example checkbox).

Open or close an element (for example combobox).

Use arrow keys to:

Change the value of an item (on forms).

Move the cursor (for example in a text input).

Use Esc to:

Cancel a prompt.

Close elements like dialogs or expanded comboboxes.

Screen readers

A screen reader is a software application that attempts to identify and interpret what is being displayed on the screen.

We recommend using NVDA for Windows users, and VoiceOver for OS users (built-in). Both are tested on our website.

More on the topic of screen readers can be found on this link.

We continue to work on improving our accessibility features through-out the website and as widespread technology keeps improving.
